Let's Get To Work!

Obstacles to Christian Growth, Christian Growth, overcoming obstacles to Christian growth
Studies show Christians are not being deliberate about discipleship. We’ve forgotten that Christ didn’t command us to become converts. He commanded us to become disciples, learning to obey everything He taught.
Matthew 28:19-20

Barna research has identified 4 obstacles to discipleship. Let’s look at each one with practical solutions--ways we can be true disciples and ways we can disciple others:

1. Commitment
Today, let’s each pray for direction. What does God specifically want us to read, study, and/or teach?  (2 Timothy 2:15)

2. Repentance
Today, let’s ask God to give us a glimpse of how our sins separate us from His purposes. And let’s not quit asking until we are moved by a revelation of His great mercy. (James 4:7-10)

3. Activity
Today, let’s identify activities, including church activities, that are keeping us too busy to do the things God wants us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)

4. Community
Today, let’s identify people in our lives with whom we can develop accountability relationships. Or, if we have these relationships, let’s think of ways to develop them more fully. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Let's do it!!

  1. This is perfect. I got ready this morning and since the kids where still in bed I figured I would spend some time with God. I opened up my iPad planning on going to YouVersion. When I turned it on the blog hop was up and saw this post! You were exactly what I was looking for!
